Taib’s policy to give Provisional Leases in settled NCR lands cause clashes all over Sarawak’s interior! It is not unexpected that the clashes would 1 day get physical-bloodily physical! Actually this had happened before-in 1999! The Taib regime should do well to remember the case in the light of the Tebedu case where machineries were burnt:
4 killed and 3 injured in Ulu Niah Tragedy
